BALTIMORE, MD – The American Marketing Association Baltimore Chapter (AMA Baltimore) announces its executive board for the 2017-2018 chapter year. The executive board is a group of volunteer leaders who are responsible for all oversight of the Baltimore chapter, including membership, sponsorship and programming. The 2017-2018 executive board includes both new and returning members.

Dov Hoffman will be continuing as chapter president for the second consecutive year. The previous year was one of many achievements for the chapter, including the launch of a new mentorship program, Mentor Connections and the new chapter website, and Hoffman is looking forward to continued growth for the chapter. This marks Hoffman’s eighth year on the executive board; he served as vice president of membership from 2010 through 2013, then as vice president of collegiate relations from 2013 until 2016 and held the position of president-elect in 2015-2016 concurrently with his collegiate relations role.

“Last year saw the chapter made great strides,” said Hoffman. “I look forward to working with our talented team of board members to continue to enhance the chapter and increase its value to our members and the local marketing community.”

Other returning board members include: Philippe Lerner, vice president of finance, Kevin Stever, secretary, Seth Geller, vice president of sponsorship; Liz Breaux, vice president of programming; Eileen Gwin, immediate past president, Linda Gordon Gilmore, vice president of membership; Takisha Toler, vice president of collegiate relations; Mira Lares, vice president of mentorship and professional development; and Joe Wagner, vice president of volunteer engagement.

Mark Edelson will continue to serve as the chapter’s general counsel, which he assumed when the role was created in September 2016.

In addition to her programming duties, Liz Breaux will also serve in the role of president-elect, in preparation for assuming the president’s role in 2018-2019. Brynn Devereaux, marketing director at Coyle Studios, joins the board as vice president of marketing and communications after having served as a volunteer on that committee, actively involved in the redesign of the chapter website, and a longtime supporter of AMA Baltimore.

The members of the executive board officially assume their roles on July 1, 2017 and will serve through June 30, 2018. The board meets monthly throughout the year, with additional committee and volunteer meetings held on a regular basis.
